MoveOn Steps Into DNC Chair Contest


WASHINGTON — MoveOn.org, the online liberal advocacy group, threw its weight into the race for the Democratic National Committee chairmanship by announcing a plan Tuesday for state-by-state endorsements from its nearly 3 million members.

The move is expected to help chairman candidate Howard Dean, who finished first in a 2003 straw poll of MoveOn members during his unsuccessful bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The plan also reflects MoveOn's determination to institutionalize its influence within the Democratic Party. Founded to protest President Clinton's impeachment in 1998, the group has become one of the party's most influential liberal voices, and most effective fundraisers, on a wide range of issues.
